I do not however feel that I must explain this to you as it really is none of your business but as this is a heated thing and you have accused me of RAPING the "Car Enthusiast" I am going to anyway.

$535 is below dealer cost now, we can still give a hell of a deal, with recent price increases from magnaflow and shipping there is absolutely no way we can price match that system anymore as there was a 5% increase a couple months back on most products that come from Magnaflow some more some less, we still get one of the largest discounts in the business from Magnaflow, and the reason we do not price match that kit anymore truly has nothing to do with price, as we stopped matching it before the price increase, it came to our attention that the only part in the kit being sold on bonanza for $535 is the muffler, all the bends and piping has been switched out for aluminumized steal, vs stainless steal. I will still match almost any price, however we are not matching any 16869 kits that are priced at $599 or less if we do we loose money and we are not in the business to do that lol. We break even a lot when we do price matches and that is fine, but we can not loose a lot of money on a deal .5-1% loss is acceptable but nothing more than that. Buy your methodology we match the $535 100 times I lose over $5500 that my friend I am sorry I can not do, I will take a loss if it is minimal however this is not a minimal loss. It used to be before the price increase from Magnaflow however it is far from that now.

Sorry you do not agree with our not price matching this particular seller anymore but it simply can not be done anymore.

With that said if you find an authorized Magnaflow Dealer selling it for less let us know we will price match it, even if you do not and you just want a great deal from an Authorized Magnaflow dealer that way their is no questions if you happen to have an issue with something and can have a hassle free experience let us know.

Thanks

Oh boy I knew u would take it personal... It's not an attack on u... But if u look the kid said it was a complete set.... Now if magna sent out a kit with alum. Pipes then it should of been stated. J who wouldn't jump on it... 550 exhaust? Good price from brand name...but u look on ebay 700-800 bucks...crazy.....
Almost anyplace u look....crazy

But on that note u As a business Man U should not loose money on a wholesale price... Sell it at cost al least u recoup your cash and reinvest in what's the next hot thing for our cars.... So come on... Don't take it personal... Times like this surprised we ALL are still modding... Between the wife's and slow business we lucky we r able to play..... So chill out...we know u give out great deals.....hey u never know maybe this guy had some guy who found a tractor trailer left on the side of the road with mufflers for ram1500 ..... And is giving out that famous 5finger discount... So like I said don't take it personal... I was taken back when I read magnaflow wouldn't honor their warrenty,..

Magnaflow has the right to refuse warranty on any part that is purchased from an unauthorized dealer, I will leave it at that. You are right 700-800 is to much, and I can not remember ever selling one for that, we all have to advertise them (or are supposed to anyway) at the same price. The reason on ebay they prices are where they are is because when you sell on Ebay you have to pay up to a 10% fee when you sell an item. Sometimes parts are cheaper sometimes they are not. I am not worried about selling them at cost to "recoup" money as more often then not when it comes to Maganflow it is shipped from one of our distribution warehouses, or Magnaflow direct, so I am not really out any money. I am more than happy to sell parts at cost when matching other people that like to discount stuff down below dealer cost. However $535 is unheard of anymore, he might still have some left in stock from before the price raise who knows. However we do not so we can not sell them at this price, we can come close but not at that price. I know of 3 people that have bought that kit and got aluminum piping vs stainless steel (the muffler was the correct one though), I also know that for a little while that seller was shut down for violation of all kinds of things. Does this happen with every kit he sells? I do not know. However I do know this as it is direct from Magnaflow.

GREAT NEWS!!! If anyone here on this forum is sick of paying bullshit prices, I just got my genuine, bona fide Magnaflow 16869 kit from Auto Anything for $534 with free shipping. They didn't bitch about pricing or warranties, just matched the price from the OP's add AND even beat it by a dollar. Outstanding service!!!

That's awesome.

That's customer service right there!

Thanks for the heads-up.

Points.

I sent Jeremiah 2 PMs, an email, and a VM message regarding this exhaust about a month ago and he never responded. As such, I'm not too impressed with Bully's Performance.

Yes, Autoanything will price match... and fortunately there are vendors who do respond.

BTW, I really like the MagnaFlow Cat-back exhaust and highly recommend this set-up; regardless of where you ultimately decide to purchase it...

You [really] can't go wrong with most of the catback exhausts you're contemplating, though I'm not sure on the Solo as I've never run it.

I too was in the similar boat and after much thought, I went with the Magnaflow catback discussed in this thread.

My review linked in my sig may help you.

That price BP nailed is really absurd as I paid significantly more than that.... and thought, at the time, I was getting a crazy deal.

Remember, the Magnaflow 16869 model for our 4th Gens retails for right around 1K.

And yes, Auto Anything is a Magnaflow authorized dealer [HERE] so you're getting the real-deal.

AutoAnything did not price match. Said it was not an authorized vendor. I bit the bullet and ordered from bonanza. I'll let you guys know what's up.
